Sundt’s projects have helped to shape the economic and social landscape of California for more than 70 years.
From higher education to courthouses, from senior living to water treatment and power plants, we have supported the Golden State in its continued growth and development. Our projects in California have varied widely, but the defining traits of our work have never changed: working closely with clients to understand their needs and then delivering results, doing whatever it takes.
Over the past decades, Sundt has become one of the state’s most celebrated contractors.
The 15+ awards we’ve earned in California in just the past five years include three AGC Build San Diego Awards, ENR California’s Best Project Award and the American Public Works Association Project of the Year.
On top of our industry honors, Sundt has earned a reputation throughout California for our exceptional project management and partnering abilities. For us, the ultimate achievement is earning the trust and, in many cases, the repeat business of our clients.
Sundt uses a number of technologies to give owners highly accurate estimates and schedules.
Not only does this boost confidence in proformas before investing in advancing design, it also makes for shorter construction timelines, better projects and greater value. Our use of virtual design construction (VDC) modeling allows owners to explore design options and gives teams a single source of comprehensive information. VDC also reduces costs by facilitating prefabrication and more efficient construction.
EDUCATION & ENVIRONMENT
Sundt works extensively with higher ed and K-12 districts, developing collaborative and sustainable approaches to CMAR and Design-Build projects.
Much of our work in this market helps institutions achieve their goals for more sustainable campuses. One of many such examples is our work at the University of California, Davis, where we constructed the campus’s first LEED Platinum® building with the Graduate School of Management and helped pioneer a new generation of sustainable research facilities in the LEED Platinum® certified Veterinary Medicine Research Facility 3B.
Achievements in Aviation
Sundt’s projects at San Diego International Airport have transformed air-travelers’ experience.
Beginning nearly a decade ago with the Terminal 2 Landside Improvements and then construction of the new SDIA Rental Car Center, Sundt has completed award-winning work at SDIA and become a trusted partner. Most recently, Sundt is continuing our relationship with SDIA building the new Airport Support Facilities project and Air Cargo project.
Our Landside Improvements project included advanced check-in and parking features built with zero interruption to control and revenue systems. Transportation components included new roadways, six bridge overpasses and two prefabricated pedestrian bridges placed in one night.
The SDIA Rental Car Center is one of the largest concrete structures in San Diego. The two-million-square-foot facility achieved LEED Gold® certification. It was also the first indoor fueling facility in San Diego, one of the first consolidated rental car facilities combined with carwash and maintenance in one building, and was completed in just 12 months.
